That is not an easy game by any means!

That's cool.  I, of course, have the Lynx version but I was not aware the game had been ported to the MD.  Something to check out.  :)

Definitely, it's much easier and a different game too.

I'm thinking of getting a 6-button arcade stick for my Genesis and found both a Sega branded and an ASCIIWARE stick.  They both look good and reviews on YouTube say they are both good.  Does anyone have any of these?

I very much prefer the Sega official sticks, both of them, even the original 3-button arcade stick was a rock solid piece of hardware, very durable and comfortable to use. I have one of those Asciiware sticks and hate it, as I find the buttons can easily wedge themselves in the housing and not pop back up sometimes.

Cool, thanks for the feedback.  I have the 3-button Sega arcade stick and I think it is fantastic but several of the games I have work better with the 6-button controllers so I'm looking into getting the 6-button version.

Another vote of confidence for the Sega controller.  Good!  :)

Some of us have been chatting about getting reproductions carts for some of the harder to find games for the Genesis/MD and making inserts for cases.  I found this video that may be helpful...
